    Thanks, Margaret…..Lifestyle is the one thing we have control over……I switched to a plant-based diet last year and took a cooking class to really learn how to cook this way. Then combined gentle yoga, walking and going to a sleep doctor for help sleeping. It’s been one year and I was able to get off 13 medications and better health I’ve had in years…turning 60 next month.

    I do that: Park a little farther away. Also cuts stress fighting for closer spots

    GM and I have my coffee! Hope you have a wonderful week end.

    Going for a walk, especially on a sunny day has always been my way to beat the winter blues. Helps me overcome the effects of SAD during Canadian winter. Violet is definitely your colour Margaret. Looking lovely as ever!

    I have a small space set up at my house were I stream work out videos. I have a stability ball, step, dumbbells, and resistance bands. The workouts are varied so I am trying something new everyday from marching with moves to yoga – typically 30 – 45 minutes. Its amazing that you can get a good challenging workout from some of the best instructors in a small space. Amazon Prime has several workouts and a special subscription channel as a starting point.

    You look so lovely this morning, Margaret and I love your necklace. I usually take a 20 minute brisk walk three times a week but since the weather has turned very cold here (10 degrees F this morning) I will ride my stationary bike. I do yoga and weight training as well. I try not to eat too much sugar but I do have a sweet tooth. My husband and I cook together and only have meat once or twice a week. We eat lots of veggies, salads, veggie noodles and quinoa.

    I follow a yoga and pilates teacher on youtube – a different routine everyday just to keep it fresh. I usually walk my dogs 2-3 times a day as well but our bitterly cold weather this month has meant very short outings. As a result, I went hunting on youtube and found a Jane Fonda walking workout session on youtube so plan to give that a whirl this afternoon! Carbs call out to me in the winter but am trying to not eat after dinner and reduce my portions. Thanks for your ideas!

    Thankyou once again๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’•
    As I’ve gotten older, body wise 65 ๐Ÿ˜€ I have discovered if, I have any form of caffeine after 2pm I will, not, sleep that night no matter how I try. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜•
    I have discovered since using baking soda to balance my PH, alot of aches and pains have lessened greatly, and my stomach tolerates more.๐Ÿ‘
    It’s so important to listen to our bodies, what works for one, may not work at all for another.๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽˆ

    I like this backdrop:)

    Hi Margaret… Iโ€™m loving my wonderful box of cards and the bracelet is sweet! Also wanted to mention that Iโ€™ve been a beret wearer since childhood and have a little collection, too! Especially perfect on a bad hair day but you still have to go out into the world. I think we need to invent summertime berets – cotton or linen! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ. I love your purple.



  15. Nancy Ciampa on August 21, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    I received my cards! Love them! I work out at the gym 3x/wk.



  16. Susan Buckley on August 21, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Great tips!! Thank you for sharing..



  17. Sharon Arrendale on August 22, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Good morning beautiful lady. I am so happy to see you. I hope that you are well & hope that you have a wonderful day โค๏ธโ˜•๏ธ

    I have been doing a keto diet lately with good success and the one thing I learned was how much sugar is in everything!! If it has โ€œtoseโ€ in the ingredient word… it is sugar!! And watch your starches! Good carbs not processed. Chamomile tea at bedtime helps me sleep well. Your Best advise given today is to get ahead of your medical needs! Donโ€™t worry what people think! Do what is right for you! No judgement! โค๏ธthat!



  19. Jo Ann Good on August 22, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Very good recommendations! Thanks!

    Have been a vegetarian since childhood and this saved my life during my first heart attack, and most likely the others as well. No plaque in my arteries! I am a creative cook of veggie foods from around the world, and read many articles and books on nutrition, exercise, and mental fitness. The winter gives me more indoor time to sew quilts for children in a shelter nearby, and smaller quilts for the animal shelter. I know that at about 4 p.m. each day, I get to watch a wonderful video on Amazon Prime, or Netflix, but only while I walk for ONE HOUR on my treadmill. I then cool down and sometimes do a guided meditation for as long as my animals will permit. It is now getting close to their dinner time and they have little patience just then. Funny to be still and trying to calm both body and mind while cats are purring around my body, on my body, and kneading my body. Love them all. The dogs do not walk all over me, but make their needs known with kisses. I never talk on the phone without walking the entire time, around and around the house, or doing squats or marching in place. Preparing dinner is a time for music and some dance moves or standing on one leg. Taking the dogs out is more time for exercise, getting natural Vit D and breathing fresh air and the joy of seeing the trees and hearing birds. I actually enjoy cleaning our home, since I consider all the physical work yet another form of exercise for mind and body, as is changing the many litter boxes we have for all of our rescued senior cats. Volunteering in a shelter, hospital, food pantry, etc. means that you have a commitment to be there. Others are depending on you, and so you get out of your own cozy home. Once out, you feel happier and useful. Make a fresh pot of veggie soup each week, and you have dinner for days. In the time saved from nightly cooking, stretch your mind with an online class or a few. You would be surprised at the number of crafts courses, language classes, even college studies that are available. I do find that moving around while participating, or doing my balance and core strengthening during a lecture has become second nature. The more you nurture both the mind and body, the better able to withstand whatever negativity might come your way so that you can better help yourself and those you love.๐Ÿ’•
